Electric truck first step towards sustainable transport in Morocco


Image of post in post detailed view

Morocco has taken delivery of Volvo’s first heavy electric truck in Africa.
The truck is a Volvo FE Electric, one of six all-electric Volvo truck models, already in serial production. The series-produced, zero-exhaust emission truck will be used for collecting waste by the company Arma in Rabat. By replacing the existing diesel truck with an electric truck on a typical route, approximately 30 tonnes of CO2 could be saved every year.
Martin Nilsson, Volvo Trucks Morocco managing director called it a proud moment to take the first step towards a more sustainable, electric transport system in Morocco, and Africa.

                It is certainly a positive step towards sustainable transport in Morocco if electric trucks are adopted. .

                      The advantages of electric commercial vehicles are obvious: They do not consume any fossil fuels or emit any CO2 in operation.

                          Because electric trucks produce no exhaust gases, they can also make deliveries in zero emission zones

                            So good to see the benefits that come just by converting from a diesel truck to an electric one
